The Clinton County Workforce Development Roundtable collaboratively tackles the critical and multi-faceted issues surrounding workforce development, retention, and recruitment in Clinton County and our surrounding region. The Roundtable is comprised of business, education, non-profit, government, and economic/community development partners, and is open to anyone from these sectors who would like to become more involved in collaborative solutions to current workforce challenges.
The Roundtable currently has three working groups – School/Community Connections, Education/Training, and Barriers to Work – in which members can become directly involved with identifying top workforce challenges and prioritizing and implementing next steps/projects.

The Clinton County Workforce Collaborative invites you to a Clinton County Career Exploration Fair on Wednesday, September 28th. The Fair will be open to the public from 3:00PM to 6:00PM. This event is not a typical job fair – it is an immersive and engaging event featuring hands-on displays that allow participants to explore – first-hand – careers available in their community.
This new and exciting event will be held at the Laurel Oaks Career Campus, 300 Oak Drive, Wilmington, Ohio 45177.
There is no charge to attend the event and no registration is required. Whether you’re an active jobseeker or simply interested in learning more about our local business community, you won’t want to miss this event!
Over 40 local businesses will be at the Job Fair highlighting and showcasing career opportunities that are available here in Clinton County! Categories of the featured industries range from aviation, healthcare, food service/hospitality, manufacturing, finance, agriculture, logistics/transportation, and more.
The Career Exploration Fair is a project of the Clinton County Workforce Collaborative with support from Junior Achievement of OKI Partners, graciously hosted by Laurel Oaks Career Campus, and sponsored by Clinton Memorial Hospital, Graphics to Go, the Clinton County Port Authority, Sam’s Meat, and the Southern Ohio Educational Service Center.
SCHOOL & COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS RESOURCE GUIDE
The Roundtable collected the information in the School and Community Connections Resource Guide from local businesses, organizations, and schools to better connect all of these entities, and to more comprehensively address workforce needs and solutions throughout our community.
This Guide is intended to make it easier for employers, local schools, and community agencies to identify and expand workforce development opportunities for youth and adults in our community.
This Guide is a working document that will be updated regularly as contacts, interests, and availability changes. If you would like to have your company’s information included in the Guide, please complete the EMPLOYER SURVEY or SCHOOL SURVEY as appropriate if you haven’t already done so!
